Baidu to Showcase Leading-edge AI Technologies at CES 2018 in Las Vegas

Baidu, Inc. (NASDAQ:BIDU), announced today it will showcase its leading-edge AI technologies, products and a vibrant partner ecosystem built around the company’s open and comprehensive AI platforms at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 in Las Vegas.

Leading off Baidu’s array of activities at CES 2018 is the Baidu World launch event on Jan 8 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Las Vegas, where Qi Lu, Baidu’s Vice Chairman, Group President and COO, and various senior Baidu executives and industry partners will take the stage to announce the latest and the most advanced versions of the Apollo open autonomous driving platform and the DuerOS open conversational AI platform.

Apollo provides a comprehensive, secure, and reliable all-in-one solution that supports all major features and functions of an autonomous vehicle. Apollo 2.0, the latest version, will enable cars to drive autonomously on simple urban roads.

In collaboration with its partner, Baidu is also set to launch a brand-new AI hardware powered by DuerOS, China’s leading conversational AI platform that is enabling a rapidly-growing community of third party hardware from more than 130 partners. Raven H, a groundbreaking smart speaker with its bold design and leading technology, will also make its US debut at CES 2018, following its initial launch at the Baidu World conference in Beijing in November.

CES 2018 attendees will have the opportunity to experience Baidu’s technologies and products at its two booths at the Las Vegas Convention Center. At the Apollo booth in the North Hall of Tech East, attendees can try out a drowsiness detection system that can alert drivers when signs show they are distracted or sleepy, and interact with a cloud-based, voice-enabled in-car assistant connected to your smart home devices. With this system, users will be able to control their vehicles remotely, for example, starting the engine and adjusting the vehicle temperature by just speaking to their smart speaker before leaving home.

The DuerOS booth in the South Hall of Tech East will showcase a select number of DuerOS- powered devices, including mobile phones, smart home appliances, TVs and wearables. Visitors to the DuerOS booth will also have the opportunity to interact with raven H, the smart speaker powered by the latest version of DuerOS.

Baidu welcomes you to join our event and visit our booths at CES 2018 for an exciting first look at Baidu’s year ahead.
